1986 Masters from the Author: John Boyette. At the age of forty-six, Jack Nicklaus was considered by some to be done as a championship golfer. Entering the 1986 Masters, most folks had written off the Golden Bear. But the winner of a record seventeen professional majors wasn't done yet. After a slow start, Nicklaus got in the hunt during the weekend, and he played the final nine holes in a 6-under-par 30. He roared past a who's who of top golfers that day to win his sixth Masters title—a record that still exists. Most experts agree that it was the most thrilling day of tournament golf ever played. Upon the twenty-fifth anniversary of arguably the most exciting Masters in history, THE 1986 MASTERS is nearly a hole-by-hole account written by a veteran sports journalist who was there. Illustrated with more than fifty exclusive photographs of the tournament from the award-winning team at the Augusta Chronicle, it takes you right onto the course with the golfers. Author John Boyette includes commentary from interviews with the key figures connected to the 1986 Masters. From Nicklaus's wife and son to CBS announcers to the players themselves—Greg Norman, Tom Kite, Bernhard Langer, Sandy Lyle, Seve Ballesteros, and many more—an amazing chorus of voices that helps tell this remarkable story. And the voice of Jack Nicklaus shines as well, in an interview provided exclusively for the book. A thoroughly absorbing narrative about one of golf's greatest moments created by one of golf's greatest figures, THE 1986 MASTERS is a must-read for any golf fan.

Ecological Informatics from the Author: Friedrich Recknagel. Ecological Informatics is defined as the design and application of computational techniques for ecological analysis, synthesis, forecasting and management. The book provides an introduction to the scope, concepts and techniques of this newly emerging discipline. It illustrates numerous applications of Ecological Informatics for stream systems, river systems, freshwater lakes and marine systems as well as image recognition at micro and macro scale. Case studies focus on applications of artificial neural networks, genetic algorithms, fuzzy logic and adaptive agents to current ecological management issues such as toxic algal blooms, eutrophication, habitat degradation, conservation of biodiversity and sustainable fishery.

Alterations In The Neuronal Cytoskeleton In Alzheimer Disease from the Author: George Perry. The neuronal cytoskeleton is a complex structure responsive to both intrinsic and extrinsic factors. Defined populations of neurons in the brains of patients with Alzheimer and several other neurodegenerative diseases contain abnormal filamentous accumulations which share elements with the cytoskeleton. Although there is a general consensus that these abnormal filaments do contain cytoskeletal elements, much debate remains regarding which cytoskeletal elements are incorporated and whether the cytoskeletal rearrangement is primary or secondary to other cellular changes. In this book these questions are addressed in a historical perspect ive in light of new data that allows the reinterpretation of previously reported results. Contributions are based on many of the major tech niques of modern biology including biochemistry, molecular biology, electron microscopy and immunocytochemistry. In the view of the editor, this volume is being written at a time when our understanding of the cytopathology of Alzheimer disease is moving from predominantly descriptive to both analytical and mechanistic. I hope that this contribution will provide impetus to speed this transi tion.
